Heck if the first group can have a thread. Let's start our own thread for the second group. I called and checked if their was anything to "expedite" delivery. Pretty much no. Paying extra doesn't get the phone here faster. This leads me to believe the 2nd batch phones are still in China. I downloaded "Deliveries" - Delivery Status touch, a package tracker app, from the App Store. You can put in your order number and email address and check your order status. It says my phone is in Ohio, but I just think it's a default location where phones from China, land for either customs, or there's an Apple warehouse, which put's things on a UPS truck.
